Label Web Server Control

Visual Studio .NET 2003

The Label Web server control provides a way to display text under programmatic control in a Web Forms page.

Note   If you want to display static text, you can present it using HTML; you do not need a Label control. Use a Label control only if you need to change the contents or other characteristics of the text in server code. If you are in linear layout mode, you can simply type text in. If you are in grid layout mode, you can add a Linear Layout Panel element and add static text inside of it.

The following topics provide information that you will find useful in learning to work with the Label Web server control.
